Self-billing is a process where the logistics provider issues an invoice to the shipper for the services rendered, based on the information in the shipper’s tender document. This eliminates the need for the shipper to generate and send an invoice to the carrier, saving time and resources. In some cases, self-billing may also result in early payment discounts or other benefits for the shipper.
Self-billing can be used for a variety of logistics services, including:
- and other supply chain management services.
It is important to note that not all carriers offer self-billing, so shippers should check with their providers to see if this option is available.
